The following payment methods are available to all students:
- Electronic Banking (Internet or Touch-Tone Telephone Banking) (our preferred method)
- Mail (Cheque, Money Order, Bank Draft – No Cash)
- International Currency Transfer (Preferred method for International Payments)
- Paying by payroll deduction (eligible students only)
Please note: Payment is not accepted on campus. Please use one of the following methods:
Contact one of the banks listed below to set-up telebanking / internet banking service. Choose one where you already have a bank account:
|Bank of Montreal||1-800-363-9992||www.bmo.com|
|Alterna (formerly CS CO-OP)||1-877-560-0100||www.alterna.ca|
|B.C. Central Credit Union||1-604-734-2511||www.cucbc.com|
The bank will ask you for the name and the account number of the bill you wish to pay through telebanking. Use “Carleton University” as the billing company name and your student number as the account number. Note: Each student account must be set up individually. Payments will be applied to the student number specified by the bank transactions.
Once you have added your classes and you have viewed your tuition assessment through Carleton Central, you can contact your bank’s telebanking / internet banking service to make fee payment. Your bank will then remit the payment to the University. Your payment may take up to three days to be processed and recorded. Registration is not considered complete until the Business Office has recorded the remittance on your student account.
Ensure you have sufficient funds in your bank account to cover your tuition fees and have allowed enough time to allow for processing to avoid late charges.
Payments may be made by cheque, certified cheque, money order or bank draft and should be mailed to the following address:
P.O. Box 4275, Postal Station “A”
Toronto, ON, M5W 5V8
Be sure to include your student number, name, and the detail of what the payment is for (eg. tuition, residence, UHIP, etc.) on the front of the cheque.
Please note that the above address is a post office box. Therefore, any payments sent via courier or that otherwise require a signature upon delivery can not be accepted. Payments at this address are processed directly by the bank. Cheques will be processed immediately regardless of the cheque date, therefore post-dated cheques may result in non-negotiable payments and applicable services charges.
The University does not accept postdated cheques. Cheques must have a current date in order to be processed.
Cheques and money orders should be made payable to Carleton University. Personal cheques are accepted but the University reserves the right to cancel the use of this method by any student if it is abused. Please ensure you have sufficient funds in your bank account to cover your tuition fees and have allowed enough time to allow for processing to avoid late charges.
The university’s preferred method for the receipt of fee payment from outside of the country is GlobalPay for Students. Carleton University has partnered with Western Union Business solutions to provide a fast, easy and affordable way to pay tuition and fee costs in a student’s local currency. The Western Union GlobalPay for Students platform allows you to pay locally from your home bank, saving money on exchange rates and banking fees and also ensuring the full value of your payment reaches Carleton University.
GlobalPay for Students also offers convenient payment options for those paying from China and India.

To be eligible for payroll deduction, you must be receiving funds from the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research in the form of a teaching and/or research assistantship or a combination of the above. You must also complete and return the “Acceptance of Award” form to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research; be full-time; and have sufficient funds to cover fees for the upcoming term.
For students receiving teaching assistantships, scholarships, or any other kind of award or bursary, please note that the deadlines for payroll may differ from the registration deadlines. In the first month of each term (September, January, and May), students must have completed registration, including finalizing fees, no later than the 15th of the month in order to be eligible to receive payments at the end of that month.
How to Pay by Payroll deduction:
If you have graduate funding you may be eligible to assign your fees to payroll as a payment arrangement. Available graduate funding will show as a payment arrangement at Step 4 of the registration process on Carleton Central, and you will be able to make your payroll deduction assignment at this point.
If you are not offered a button to assign your funding, then there is no funding/insufficient funding showing in Grad funding. In this case, you will be responsible for the Amount to Pay line and your Payment Arrangement Status will remain Pending until your payment has been received and processed by the Business Office.
Changing your Status and Funding:
If you change your status and your funding is subsequently denied or reduced so that there are insufficient funds to pay the amount you authorized for payroll deduction, you are responsible for the immediate payment of the deficit amount by using one of the other fee payment methods.
